You’ve heard about the magnificent Lake District, but what about the Victorian seasides, charming towns and historic houses nearby? Stay at one of our cosy pubs with rooms in Cumbria and find out more…
The Lake District is the first national park in the UK to be granted UNESCO World Heritage status. A stunning landscape of sparkling lakes, mountainous terrains and verdant valleys, it covers a third of Cumbria, and deserves its title. But, dig a little deeper and you’ll discover there’s a whole lot more to this gentle region.
Take the Eden Valley – a perfect blend of lush green hills, river and picturesque sandstone villages. The best part? It’s still relatively unknown. And, what about the staggering North Pennines – another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in this part of the world. Open heather moors and hay meadows, pretty rivers, and some of the finest pub B&B in Cumbria, all make this an idyllic place to spend a weekend.
Dog Friendly Pubs in Cumbria
Fortunately, the dog friendly pubs in Cumbria are pretty special too. What better way to spend your day than strolling through soft, sloping hills before settling down for a hearty meal. Think spring lamb served with damsons and turnips or locally smoked fish from Morecambe Bay. Prefer a good old-fashioned pie? No worries, gastro pubs in Cumbria have the local food nailed.
It’s not all about the countryside though. Head to the coast for wonderful seaside resorts. Seascale, Allonby, St Bees all make for a great family day out. And, a must is the stretch of coastline at Morecambe Bay for its scenic viewpoints, little islands and rivers trickling into the estuary. Ever-changing, this is a place you’ll never tire of.
When you stay at country pub accommodation in Cumbria, hotfoot it to any one of the historic buildings – Askham Hall, Lowther Castle, Holker Hall and Muncaster. Then on to Carlisle to check out its incredible fortress castle, fascinating past and the beginning of iconic Hadrian’s Wall.
One of England’s most under-the-radar regions, this is the perfect place to explore if you’re seeking a sense that all’s right with the world. Staying at one of these pubs with rooms in Cumbria is as good as it gets…
